The Mission Chronograph was originally made for a group of astronauts on a NASA STS-99 mission in 2000. The predecessor to our current M250-2 was tested and proven in outer space, serving as a reliable instrument to those aboard the Endeavour spacecraft. It was the first wristwatch worn in outer space of the new millennium. A legacy continued today in the Mission Collection. Each series - M250 , M250-1, and the current M250-2 are limited in production to 100 individually-numbered and customizable timepieces. The collection has evolved with utility, versatility and elegance while remaining true to its core identity - a series of tool-watches made for space travelers and professionals alike.
